Red nose tetras are peaceful but delicate fish that attain a length of about 1.5 inch at maturity. The nose and forehead is deep red, and also the body silvery tending to olive on the back with a light yellow on the belly. A dark stripe runs down the side of the body increasing in width as it extends into the tail. The tail has a dark angular mark on every lobe.
Spawning might be encouraged in soft water at a temperature of 80°F, and pH 6-8, otherwise it breeds in the standard manner.
The red nose tetra isn’t an simple species to breed even though it might well be worth a try.
